All Critics (47) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (43) | Rotten (4)

  • It is, as per usual for Hartley, a giddy, lightning-paced celebration of cheerfully terrible movies.

    May 28, 2016 | Full Review…
  • [Director Mark Hartley] has assembled a lively collection of clips and interviews that gives the Cannon story definition and shape, without stinting on the gratuitous anecdotes.

    June 11, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Offers a cornucopia of spectacularly trashy clips that will leave you laughing, screaming and squirming - sometimes all at once.

    June 7, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • What it does offer are some wildly colourful, jaw-dropping anecdotes from their friends and collaborators about their working methods.

    June 4, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Fortunately, in the hands of the documentary film-maker Mark Hartley, the result is a romp through the insalubrious depths of the straight-to-video bin of your local 1980s video rental establishment.
